Vixen Instr. Medleys: How to? (20) Instr. Medleys: How to? 31 Jul 06

Hi all--

I've just gotten to a point of musical competence where I can start playing one tune and switch to another without a perceptible train wreck. Consequently, I'm now interested in putting together "my own" medleys...and I'm finding that, like playing them, creating them is much more difficult than it might appear!

For example, my first attempt was "Annie's Apotheosis Medley" which had, in order, Ragtime Annie, Lady Anne Montgomery, St. Anne's Reel. Well, that doesn't seem to flow very well. I tried it the other way (call it Annie's Fall!) going from St Anne, through Lady Anne to Ragtime Annie, but that doesn't seem to work either.

It could be my inexperience in hearing a logical transition, or it could be that these tunes "just don't fit together"...

SOOOOO, how do you go about making medleys???

All thanks in advance!
